## RainbowDeck card mapping

There are enough cards in a an RD dice suit to make one side's worth of Chess pieces. Playing Red (Hearts = red/pink) against Black (Spades = black/gray) is suggested, although any 2 suits would do.

• King = K
• Queen = Q
• Rook = J x 2
• Bishop = 8 x 2 (8 looks both like a letter B and also like the piece)
• Knight = 7 x 2 (7 looks like the piece, and is less than 8)
• pawns = low cards (0-3) x 2

32 other cards from the deck can be chosen at random to be laid face-down to make the light squares of a chessboard.
